SmartSim: GPL-ed digital logic circuit design and simulation package for Linux and Raspberry Pi

Itching to create complex, digital logic circuits? How about giving SmartSim a try.

If the name is new to you, SmartSim is a digital logic circuit design and simulation package that lets you “create your own custom components and including them in other circuits, as if they were any other built-in component. These larger circuits can then also be included in other designs as sub-components.”

SmartSim was created using the Vala object-oriented programming language, the GTK+ and Cairo graphics libraries by then 16-year old sixth form student Ashley Newson from Oxford, UK. He fully believes in the Free Software development philosophy and thus released SmartSim under the GNU General Public License version 3.

SmartSim gives you the ability to create hierarchical designs, interactive simulations, and is touch screen-friendly. For a teenager, Ashley is not just a good coder, but a good writer as well. Read his history of SmartSim here.
